Hi, Any of you guys ever watched American Chopper (yeah, sad I know)? Those guys don't bother with masks when tacking stuff up and half the time don't even seem to be closing their eyes! I'd been told that even closing your eyes won't do the job as your eyelids are so thin, is that right? Isn't a TIG arc supposed to be worse for you than MIG too? Is this just blatantly irresponsible programming, and will thousands of half blind Americans be crashing their choppers all over the show this summer... I figure with an auto darkening mask whats the difference anyway?
